From "History of Clermont and Brown Counties, Ohio" (Clermont County Genealogical Society, 1913/1987)
"E. C. Manning: One of the rising young business men of Bethel, Ohio, who is successfully engaged in the fire insurance business is E. C. Manning, of an old and representative family of Clermont County, Ohio. He is a pleasantly progressive gentleman, having a fine, up-to-date business and numbers his friends by the scores. The birth of Mr. E. C. Manning occurred March 29, 1874, on the farm of his father, O. J. Manning, who is also a native of the county, being born April 2, 1844. He has followed farming as an occupation all his life. He married Miss Frances M. Fee, who was born in Clermont County, September 14, 1851, and whose death took place July 19, 1883. Of the five children who were given to this union three are living: E. C., the subject of this sketch; Samuel F., assistant secretary of the board of health of the city of Chicago; Elmer J., of Bethel, with the Interurban Traction Company. Mr. Manning acquired his education in the schools of Bethel and Clermont County and began his business career in the tobacco business in connection with farming, continuing for ten years. For five years following, he was with the Interurban Traction Company, after which he was deputy of the probate court for one year. Since the expiration of his term as deputy, he has devoted his entire time to fire insurance business, representing the following companies: Old Hartford Insurance Company, Insurance Company of North America, New York Underwriters, Home Insurance Company of New York, Philadelphia Underwriters, Aetna Insurance Company, German American Company, Continental, Royal, Fidelity Underwriters, Sun of England, Norwich Union of England, and American Central. On April 27, 1899, Mr. Manning was united in marriage to Miss Blanch Penny, a native of Brown County, Ohio, whose parents are G. H. and Mary (Norris) Penny, residents of Bethel, Ohio. There are four children in the family: A. H., resides at Memphis, Tenn.; Miss Bessie, now the wife of Clemens Reif, residing at Morrow, Warren County, Ohio; Blanch, who is Mrs. Manning; Grace, who is an exceptionally fine teacher, has taught in the schools of Youngstown, Middletown, and Bethel, Ohio. She is a graduate of the Bethel High School, and holds a life teacher's certificate in Ohio. One child has blessed the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Manning, Beulah Mae, born February 3, 1908, in Clermont County, Ohio. They are consistent members of the Methodist church and Mr. Manning has membership in the fraternal organizations of Masons, Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias. Mrs. Manning has membership in the Eastern Star and Pythian Sisters. Mr. Manning endorses the principles of the Democratic party adn is at present township clerk. He has also served his party as mayor of Bethel most acceptably. In June, 1912, he was elected deputy grand chancellor of Clermont County, Ohio, at the grand lodge of Knights of Pythias, in session at Canton, Ohio. Mr. Manning deserves all the praise that is implied in the term "self-made" for his prosperity and advancement is due to his own energy and close application to his business interests."
